The joint workshop “Is Your Region Worth Your Love? Soft Digitalisation, Regional Attraction and Engagement” will take place on Tuesday, 12 October from 9:30 to 11:00 CET at the European Week of Regions and Cities, under the thematic cluster Digital Transition.
The workshop will examine the elements of regional attraction from the point of view of “soft digitalisation” and participation, especially in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. How does the digital transition enable better services and quality of living? How to include different actors in development processes? Practical case studies will be presented to inspire interaction and seek possible cooperation opportunities.
The event is organised by the Regional Council of Päijät-Häme (Finland), leading partner of the Interreg Europe Next2Met project, which coordinates the workshop, together with the Asikkala municipality (Finland), HafenCity University Hamburg (Germany) representing the Interreg Europe RUMORE project and the Smart Village of Veberöd (Sweden), and is supported by other partners such as the CPMR, the Interreg MED HERIT-DATA project and the Interreg Europe CARPE DIGEM project.
